At least she's honest about it.

On The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday, LeAnn Rimes spoke about the controversy she generated when she began her infamous affair with Eddie Cibrian.

"It could've been handled a lot better," she says of her conduct.

"Maybe we both didn't have the tools at the time to do it properly," she says. "But I've learned a lot. Sometimes you just want to scream. But you don't."

"We've learned to let it go and laugh at it at the end of the day."

They did get married in the end, so ... there's that.

The two were, of course, married to other people when they began dating - Rimes to Dean Sheremet and Cibrian to Brandi Glanville. But the past is the past.

LeAnn Rimes' weight also came up on the broadcast, with the singer calling fans' criticism of her slender frame disrespectful and likening it to bullying.

LeAnn Rimes' weight has become a cause for concern.

Everybody from Twitter followers to Giuliana Rancic has been weighing in (pun intended) on the country star's frame of late, even as Rimes repeatedly asserts that her thin physique is due to exercise, not starvation.

Her husband, Eddie Cibrian, says he can vouch for that.

The Playboy Club star told Access Hollywood that rumors regarding his wife irritate him because "I know she’s healthy - she eats more than I do sometimes!"

"She eats healthy, but she works out pretty hard too, and she actually takes pride in the way she looks," Cibrian added. "It’s a shame that people will jump on the bandwagon just because she is fit - and she’s far from unhealthy."

"[LeAnn] works out like crazy... she works out hard. She boxes. She trains."

The latest round of hubbub about LeAnn's weight began August 30, when bikini photos were published online showing a much thinner, more vascular LeAnn.

Rimes shoots back at her critics frequently. This time, Eddie did it for her.

LeAnn Rimes got a tattoo on Sunday to honor hubby Eddie Cibrian.

Fortunately, unlike certain people (cough, Kat Von D), he is believed to have gotten only a temporary one ... and not a giant picture of her man's face.

The 28-year-old country star had her wedding vows written onto her ribcage at Lollapalooza's Miami Express Yourself Oasis and Express Rocks suite.

LeAnn Rimes: THIN!

The homage to her marriage to The Playboy Club star reads: "You gave me the courage to be truthful. I promise to give you the comfort to be trustful."

Infamously, both Rimes and Cibrian, 38, were married to other people when they fell in love on the set of the Lifetime film Northern Lights in 2008.

Their affair was exposed. Tumult ensued. Rimes' and Cibrian's respective marriages began to implode, even as they tried to deny the affair at first.

Cibrian has never been shy about flaunting his toned physique: he hits the beach with his wife quite often, and to stay in shape, regularly visits the gym.

He follows in some gorgeous footsteps: Sex and the City‘s Jason Lewis and Halle Berry‘s ex Gabriel Aubry have both been in the buff for Charisma, too.

Interestingly, Eddie's former wife, Brandi Glanville, can also be seen on TV soon, having joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 2 cast.

Follow the jump for another of Cibrian's Charisma shots:

LeAnn Rimes is headed to the Windy City with her husband, Eddie Cibrian, who will be filming the new NBC series The Playboy Club in Chicago.

The singer Tweeted Thursday:

"Three sets of toiletries, three sets of clothes, starting Thursday, our time is split between L.A., Chicago and the world! I'm ready! Great things!"

Mr. & Mrs. Cibrian

"Very excited for our new adventure," Rimes said Thursday. "Lots of flying back and forth, but well worth it! [I'm] beyond proud of my husband!"

In the new series, highly-touted by the network, Cibrian, who used to star on CSI: Miami, plays Nick Dalton, a lawyer and Playboy Club regular.

Eddie and LeAnn met - and began an affair - on the set of the Lifetime film Northern Lights. He was then married to model Brandi Glanville.

Eddie Cibrian is far from thrilled with his ex joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and demanding his kids with Brandi Glanville won't be on it.

The actor, who split with Glanville after his affair with LeAnn Rimes, who he wed last month, says he'll go to court to stop her from hurting their sons.

Brandi Glanville joined the cast for next season, following a similar blueprint to that of Camille Grammer, who milked her split with Kelsey to the max.

Will Eddie Cibrian torpedo Brandi Glanville's new Bravo gig?

Eddie's pissed enough about that, but he's threatening legal action if their two small children - Mason, 7, and Jake, 4 - make any kind of Real cameo.

For her part, Brandi says this is a HUGE double standard, given that the kids just appeared in a spread in People with LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian.

Safe to say that whole truce thing is on thin ice.

LeAnn Rimes is a married woman once again.

The country singer married actor Eddie Cibrian last night in a private, very un-hyped ceremony, but she confirmed the joyous news on Twitter afterward.

"Eddie and I are overwhelmed by the amount of lovely well wishes. We are blessed and ... I'm Mrs. Cibrian!!!!!" Rimes wrote on the social networking site.

Rimes, 28, wore a Reem Acra gown as she and Cibrian, 37, exchanged personalized vows in a small, private affair Friday in front of about 40 guests.

Eddie's sons Mason, 7, and Jake, 4, from his previous marriage to Brandi Glanville - who recently called a truce with former rival LeAnn - were on hand.

"So wonderful to wake up as husband and wife. Love to all of you," she continued:

Just in case anyone missed her Tweet, Rimes also updated her bio on the site ...

LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian and Brandi Glanville in a story that doesn't involve arguing? Amazing. One that involves them all partying together? More amazing!

At Chuck E. Cheese for Eddie and Brandi's son's birthday, but still.

Looking like one big happy family, Eddie, his ex-wife and fiancee LeAnn pulled back the claws and made nice at seven-year-old Jake's party. Hell freezes over!

Rimes and Glanville recently called a truce on Twitter after months and months of often public disagreements stemming from Eddie's affair with, and subsequent engagement to the former while divorcing the latter. It was awkward.

Maybe the armistice will stick.

Their long-running feud recently escalated on Twitter, but now Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes are burying the social media hatchet - together.

After battling it out over Twitter (and all other methods of media, and presumably in private as well) for over a year, they swear it's finally over.

"As a collective unit, Brandi and I would like all negativity to cease toward one another," wrote Rimes, who's engaged to Brandi's ex, Eddie Cibrian.

When Eddie and LeAnn got together in 2009, both were married to other people - he to Brandi Glanville and she to Dean Sheremet. Much bitterness ensued.

Rimes says she's done bashing Brandi - and wants her fans to stop, too.

"We have communicated and have a direct understanding that we are ONLY ourselves on Twitter and have no other accounts that try to destroy one another."

"Please for our families' sake stop the hate and let us live OUR lives. We don't need opinions or outside help for that to happen. Thanks, LeAnn and Brandi."

The statement was subsequently retweeted by Glanville.

While it's a bit silly to call out your own followers for backing you up in a feud with your sworn enemy, it's good they resolved their differences in any case.

Despite reports of an Eddie Cibrian-LeAnn Rimes reality show in the works, the singer claims she's not and will never take her career down that road.

No way, in fact. Rimes flatly denied a story that said she is negotiating the rights to a reality show that would follow her wedding plans with Ed.

"I don't know how many times I have to say Eddie and I would never do a reality show about our lives," the singer Tweeted earlier this week.

Her rep also commented, calling reports "absolutely untrue."

Adds the rep of the couple, who got engaged in December, "There has never been, nor are there, any plans for LeAnn and Eddie to do a reality show."

This is not the first rumor surrounding the pair's romance.

They denied their engagement about a month before it happened, then recently denied reports that they're getting married in Montana this spring.

Rimes also shot down pregnancy speculation last year. It's enough to drive Brandi Glanville insane ... not that you can consider that a huge stretch.
